This webinar is about a music workshop that was created by Katie DuTemple, a singer/songwriter volunteer, and is facilitated with Erin LeDrew, R/TRO, CTRS recreation specialist at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). Participants learn about the blues as an art form, and how to construct a traditional blues song. Through collaborative efforts, participants create lyrics, which are then sung by the volunteer, which creates a powerful impact for the participants. This workshop has generated tremendous therapeutic benefits to the participants who attend, including a new coping strategy, a creative outlet and an increased sense of self-efficacy. Participants are able to use the techniques provided in the workshop to write lyrics and poetry; to journal creatively and to think about difficult topics in a productive way. Most importantly this workshop teaches participants new skills to cope and manage stressors in their life, which is crucial in successful recovery from mental illness and addiction.
